If you're trying to save money by buying a used car, why spend money to buy a vehicle history? For starters, it could save you thousands of dollars in repairs and prevent huge headaches for you down the line. Vehicle history reports can tell you a number of things about a car, including:
• Whether it has ever been in a flood or had its engine rebuilt
• Whether the odometer has been tampered with
• Whether the car is stolen
• If the car was ever registered by a rental agency, police force, or taxi service
All of these factors would have major implications in terms of the wear and tear that was placed on the vehicle before you took ownership.
